Sparrow, Anthony and Samuel Downes
London: Printed by J. Bettenham, for Charles Rivington, 1722. Seventh edition (Rationale), Second edition (Lives). Leather Bound. Very Good. 5 x 7 1/2 inches. 8vo. Engraved frontispiece + combined title page in red and black + 5 leaf preface + title page (Lives) + 1 leaf (contents) + ccx + 12 page index + title (Rationale) + 4 leaves preface and contents + 317 numbered pages (including two additional separate titles for included works) + 11 page table and index. A few spots and closed tear to title page, otherwise generally very clean. Bound in full paneled calf which is bumped and rubbed. Both hinges professionally repaired with Japanese tissue, spine with five raised and gilt bands, and chipping losses to head and tail. ESTCT130846. A very good copy of this early description of the compilation of the English BCP, biographies of the compilers, and commentary on the BCP. Sparrow (1612-1685) was an English Anglican priest and bishop of Norwich and Exeter. He was also an adherent of "Laudianism," an early seventeenth-century reform movement within the Church of England promulgated by Archbishop William Laud and his supporters, which rejected the predestination upheld by the previously dominant Calvinism in favor of free will. It is probably best known for its impact on the Anglican High Church movement and its emphasis on liturgical ceremony and clerical hierarchy.

(Timber in Sussex & Kent)
London and Beckley: various dates. 1 vols. Folio and 4to. Jane Austen's Kent. John Luxford lived at Woods Gate Near Tunbridge Wells. The abstract relates to the title of pasture woodlands in Kent and Beckley, Sussex and begins with the will of Samuel Gott (1722) whose property descended to the daughters of his sister who had married William Westom Hugessen of Provender. The daughters married Sir Edward Knatchbull and Sir Joseph Banks. Jane Austen's Fanny Knight Knatchbull was the daughter-in-law of the first named becoming the second wife of Sir Edward Knatchbull. Further relating to Austen is a notation on page 12 that part of the premises in Kent had been sold by Gott to Thomas Knight Esquire. Thomas Knight and his wife, Catherine Knatchbull Knight adopted Jane Austen's brother Edward (father of Fanny). He was raised at their home at Godmersham Park in Kent. Later is a notation that 23 acres had been rented by William Whatman. The title is traced through until the late Sir Henry Thomas Gott. The 1811 printed catalogue is annotated with purchaser's names and prices paid, including a lot to Luxford. Each lot bears a manuscript coded marking with a note following lot 12 saying that there may have been a mistake made in marking the trees in two lots but to follow the writer's figures for the others. The 1824 printed catalogue bears some prices marked out. The letter from Howland reports on the valuation of timber apparently on the lots listed in the 1824 catalogue although the letters dates from after the sale. Together 8 items in 9 pieces. Folds and creases, some marginal te … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAMDEN, William / And Translated into English, with Additions and Improvements, by Edmund Gibson
London: James and John Knapton et al(ND (1722)). William Camden (1551-1623) was an English antiquary and historian, who, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth, travelled throughout England collecting material for "Britannia", which was first published in 1586. Initially written in Latin, it is a survey of the British islands; its archaeology, geography, institutions, monetary system and inhabitants, "chiefly intended for the instruction of foreigners" (or so Gibson states in his Preface to this edition). It was first translated into English in 1610, probably under Camden's direction (see Ency. Brit. 11th, vol. V, p. 101). Gibson's revision was first published in 1695. Our set is the undated "Second Edition" but, by comparing particulars with available bibliographical resources, we believe it was published in 1722. Title pages are printed in red and black, with an elegant full-page copper engraving of Camden as the frontispiece of the first volume. There are 50 double-page maps of the English counties, Ireland, Scotland, and "the Islands"; six of the maps are folding. There are also twelve large full-page engravings, and numerous smaller engravings in the text. There is a comprehensive index and the errata page is present. A previous owner has reinforced the hinges with linen-like binding tape. The boards are quite worn and rubbed, but a competent bookbinder could restore both bindings. The contents are remarkable clean, with only occasional foxing, and a few stained pages. The maps, by the cartographer Robert Morden, and which are usually removed and sold individually, are a … [Click Below for Full Description]
